My number 1 favorite Rapper of all time is, Andre 3000!!! Well obviously!!! There is just no one who has ever been able touch his lyrical prowess and and extreme creativity. Grant it he hasn’t ever really rapped solo. The only times he has ever rapped without Big Boi, as the duo OutKast, is on a couple songs on “The Love Below”, which is technically his solo album. This was also still under the OutKast moniker and 95% of that album is him singing (not rapping), which don’t get me wrong, I also enjoy very much. Since 2006, after the release of “Idlewild”, which also featured him singing the majority of the time, Andre (3 Stacks) basically went into hiding, only emerging to be featured on other peoples tracks, here and there. This lack of solo raps made it very hard for me to find a song displaying his amazing lyrical skill. This feat was also made even more difficult paired with trying to also find a solo song with him just rapping, that also had a video for it. So I gave up on the hope of finding a solo video of his with him rapping and settled for the song “A Life in the Day of Benjamin Andre” from “The Love Below” for today’s song of the day, which is him just rapping for 5 minutes straight. No chorus. It’s SICK!!! And this is just the very tip of the iceberg on how awesome he is as a Rapper. Through his whole career with Outkast, from 1994’s “Southernplayalisticadillacmusik” to 1996’s “ATLiens” to 1998’s “Aquemini” to 2000’s “Stankonia” and beyond he has always spit the most perfect, creative, thought provoking, killer verses any Rapper could ever hope to spit. If you are not as familair with Andre 3000 or OutKast as you should be, I suggest (highly suggest) you get acquanted and FAST!!!
